Tyrannical Control Over Our Food Choices


When the food supply becomes tightly centralized...so does the power over the people. This has happened throughout history. Whenever there is a large centralized agricultural society, this translates into loss of freedoms and serfdom. We need to realize the subterfuge being used to make the public believe that food safety and other restrictive food regulations are for our protection and health. Some regulations are necessary but they are not concentrating on the needful aspects of cleanliness and humane treatment of animals. The main thrust is to bankrupt the small local farmers and to further corporate agricultural dictatorship.

The current USDA food Pyramid is constructed with grains as the central focus or base of the pyramid, with healthy fats and protein playing a very minor role. It is much more profitable for our industrialized agricultural system to promote plant food as opposed to animal food. They want you to think that raising animals on pasture is destructive to the environment and unhealthy to eat. On the contrary......agriculture, with its pesticides and stripping of our soil, is much worse for the environment than animals naturally grazing on grass.When it comes to our diet... Instead of listening to the biased advice of Corporate America, lets be reverent and wise and look to the time honored foods and methods of food preparation that our ancestors used. Their nutritional advice did not shift with corporate interests as our modern profit seeking nutritional guidelines do. We are not healthier from reducing healthy animal fats and increasing the refined oils of commerce....we are sicker...much sicker. It is the strong emphasis on carbohydrates and refined vegetable oil (very subject to rancidity and deterioration with heat) that is making us fatter and less healthy.

CARBON TRADING

You thought carbon trading was all about reducing dependence on fossil fuel? Think again. A proposed trial of a personal carbon trading scheme will also aim at getting people to reduce consumption of "fatty foods" in the name of targeting obesity. The three year project will involve giving everyone on Norfolk Island , a small island in the Pacific Ocean located between Australia, New Zealand and New Caledonia, a card preloaded with "carbon units". They will pay for their power and gasoline with carbon units - and from the second year also their food. "If people are thrifty," says Professor Garry Egger, an organizer of the program,"and don't buy alot of petrol or power or fatty foods, they will have units to spare, which they can cash in at a bank. If they aren't frugal and produce alot of carbon and consume unhealthy fatty foods, then every year they will have to buy extra units" (www.sunshinecoastdaily.com.au  , October 28, 2010 ). Looks like carbon trading is morphing from a plan to "save the planet" into a social engineering and public policy scheme. If carbon rationing becomes widespread, the same system can be used to ration food and make government nutrtion objectives mandatory.
